util to change bios setting from within windows?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I think the answer is "no", but here goes: is there a utility (or more than one) that allows one to alter BIOS settings from within Windows WITHOUT restarting? For example the AISuite from ASUS requires a restart as I understand it and it can't modify the vcore. I'd be most interested in changing these two parameters specifically: FSB and vcore.

Thanks!

You can change FSB using Clockgen:

vCore .... I don't know of any utility.

There are utilities also to change RAM timings. But again, none that I know of that alter voltages

If you mean actual settings like boot order and c1e and fancy stuff, then no, but there are many apps to change clockspeeds from within windows

There are... but don't use them. You really are better off performing the changes in the BIOS. nTune allows you to but has been known to screw up the system/BIOS.
Once again...

Yeah but not voltages. Uguru I think should be able to but thats for abit only and I dont know of any third party products that can do that. If there are they probably arent that great hence why noone knows about them.

Plus what if your program wigged and overvolted your stuff, that would be bad.

That's too bad. The vcore is really what raises/lowers temps. Thanks for the links!

Even if there is software, BIOS is the way to go

What's so wrong with a reboot or 200 ??
